Let me start by saying that I've never been to a Winger's Roadhouse Grill. They are apparently out west and I live in the east. However, I've seen several recipes for Copycat Winger's Sticky Fingers, which is a chicken fingers recipe, and they look amazing.
The chicken fingers start out by being dipped in breadcrumbs and baked in the oven. The sauce is a sweet and spicy combination that coats the chicken fingers and makes them sticky and delicious.
The recipe was fairly simple and easy to make. The chicken was easy to put together and it looked crisp and wonderful after it had finished cooking. I poured the sauce over top and baked the chicken for a little bit longer.
When I pulled the chicken out I could smell the sweet and spicy sauce. The chicken looked incredible. I served it with ranch dipping sauce to help cool off the spiciness. The chicken fingers were spicy with a sweet undertone. The ranch dressing helped to tame the spiciness. These would be perfect for tailgating or sporting events!
